Mack Brown Responds

Earlier today, a report surfaced that Mack Brown had agreed to step down as head football coach at the University of Texas and move into a administrative role at the University.

When reached by text moments ago, Brown refuted the story to Horns247.

"I haven't seen (the) article," Brown wrote.

"I'm in Florida recruiting. If I had decided to step down I sure wouldn't be killing myself down here. I have not decided to step down."

Brown is expected to be in Florida for the next two days. He is expected to visit running back Dalvin Cook in Miami today and linebacker Andrew Beck in Tampa tomorrow.

Additionally, sources tell Horns247 that Texas football staff has not been made aware of any such decision.

As we reported earlier today, a high-ranking Texas source told Horns247 a decision regarding Mack Brown’s future is expected within the next 48 hours.
